    I hope that this isn't the last time we see War Mother. This was a compelling series full of action, suspense, character-driven drama, and great world building. It's also a rather straightforward story, a slight departure from Van Lente's typical work, which is more humorous, clever, and structurally playful. Of course, after reading Ivar: Timewalker, just about anything comes off as simple and straightforward in comparison. Dr. J gives this an" Read Full Review

    I can't recommend it for younger readers, but there's a lot of potential here for those old enough to handle the violent aspects. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Christopher Amundson Sep 26, 2017

    Fred Van-Lente does an excellent job driving this comic right down main street, making us feel like the Mother and Child's bonds can't be broken, or are extremely tight, but gives us zero definition to their bond. Read Full Review

    War Mother is doing some bizarre and gorgeous storytelling. It has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the 4001 A.D. line from Valiant. The nest issues promise to be insane, so the best is yet to come. Read Full Review

    This is shaping up to be an excellent sci-fi / horror story. Given a surge in interest in the horror genre right now, it couldnt be better timed. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Oct 1, 2017

    This issue progresses the story along nicely, and tees up the next issue well. The art from Segovia is excellent, a nice blend of color, and let's just call it, Ana and Flaco just look pretty goddamned cool together. An enjoyable title and a successful second issue. Looking forward to the next installment. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 27, 2017

    I'm probably not going to review the rest of the series. I'll read it, but it's doubtful that there's going to be any big changes in the next two issues. If there are, I'll be back to cover it, but if not then you can assume my scores for the last two will be the same as this review. It's an average comic, but more than just being average it reveals a growing problem at Valiant, too many of their mini-series and limited series are forgettable. I hope they'll get back to the time a few years ago when they released nine solid titles each month, and you wanted to read all nine. Read Full Review
